Album artwork for Pigs and Battleships by Quando Quango

Factory Benelux presents a new remaster of 'Pigs and Battleships', the frisky electronic dance album by Quando Quango originally released on Factory Records in November 1985. Produced by legendary New York mixmaster Mark Kamins, the album includes the infectious club singles 'Love Tempo' and 'Genius', both Hacienda classics and firm favourites of deejays from Larry Levan to Andrew Weatherall to Felix Da Housecat. Bonus tracks include manic cut-up 'Genius Pt 2', previously available only on Pow Wow in the States, and all four tracks from Quando's punchy 1984 BBC radio session for David Jensen, which includes the definitive version of 'Atom Rock' as well as 'Swampland', a song never recorded elsewhere. Quando Quango were Mike Pickering, Gonnie Rietveld, Simon Topping and Barry Johnson. Guest musicians include Andy Connell, Vini Reilly, Donald Johnson and Beverly McDonald. Post Quango, Mike Pickering and Simon Topping went on to form British House music pioneers T-Coy, and later M People.
